Rep. Diamond Staton-Williams (D-Harrisburg) spoke about how, 20 years ago, as a young wife, student, and mother of two, she and her husband chose for her to have an abortion. “It was not made lightly or frivolously. And it wasn’t birth control because I was on birth control,” she said. “I knew that in order for my family to prosper and to continue with the opportunities that we had in front of us, this was the best decision for us.” Credit: Rose Hoban
